Unloaded the kiln today. Results OK. Will re-fire 2 of them but that is OK. I need to test 75% dirt, 25% borate. I am short of 20/80 and want to know what an increase in borate will do to the glaze. I should mix 75/25, 70/30 and then with extra iron and some copper. Copper and iron can make a very metallic looking glaze. I am traveling to Wenaha Gallery tomorrow with some of the new pots, finally. I think when we get back from New Orleans I'll take a load to Moses Lake.
